Fayetteville State University’s Chancellor Darrell T. Allison was this year's William Pearson Tolley Champion for Veterans in Higher Education.

Awarded by Student Veterans of America, this award is given out to leaders of universities across the nation who provide management strategies that demonstrate leadership while supporting military and veteran students. 

Chancellor Allison has been extensively working toward broadening FSU’s reach to their targeted population by providing more services and resources for adult learners and students with military backgrounds. This initiative has pushed FSU to be among the top-ranked colleges with military connections as a four-year HBCU.

Chancellor Allison was honored during a luncheon at SVA’s National Convention of student veterans.

“It gives me great pleasure to celebrate this huge honor bestowed upon me. FSU not only is the second oldest institution in the University of North Carolina System, it also is just miles away from the largest military installation in the world, Fort Bragg. This puts us in prime position to be the nation's leading HBCU for military and veteran students, and I am thankful for the acknowledgement,” stated Chancellor Darrell T. Allison. 

With Chancellor Darrell T. Allison being this year’s recipient, FSU is recognized as the first of 16 schools in the UNC system to obtain this honor.
